Drama in the Primary Curriculum
This one-day drama CPD course immerses you in activities and ideas which you can take back and use immediately in the primary school classroom or drama club. The focus is on the use of drama strategies to support the primary curriculum, including still images, teacher in role, hot-seating, ten-second objects, thought-tracking and many more. Participants have the opportunity to work with drama expert David Farmer, to discuss common issues with colleagues and devise solutions to put into practice. Thursday 27th September, London >>
Classroom Climate and Communication: Developing Student Interaction, Teacher Presence and Rapport
Mark Almond and David Farmer lead this brand new interactive one-day workshop for educators working in any sector. The course covers a range of accessible drama games and techniques for increasing motivation, interactivity and communication in the classroom. We will demonstrate practical techniques for developing teacher presence which can be applied to the art of teaching, thereby improving classroom climate, group dynamics, presence and rapport.

Even More Drama in the Primary Curriculum!
In response to demand, we have created a brand new drama training day for teachers who have previously attended the Drama in the Primary Curriculum course and are ready for more! David Farmer will deliver several lesson plans and ideas suitable for KS 1 and KS 2 to use in the primary school classroom and drama club. David is currently developing a new book of drama lessons and will demonstrate several of these on the day.

Drama strategies – also known as drama techniques or drama conventions – are the everyday tools of the drama teacher. They help to develop enquiry skills, to encourage negotiation, understanding and creativity. They can enhance performance skills such as character development and storytelling and be used across the curriculum to actively involve students in their own learning.
